    a ha ha ha ha....
    See that makes no sense. My avvie is BD player. I supported BD over India in every match the two sides have faced in. Not once in my life have I rooted against BD. I was involved in the Nat setup for BD in Battrick, FTP and Stumped.

    Flip-flopping Indian fan? Sure. Newbie bandwagoner for Hong Kong? Fair enough. But I'm as committed a BD fan as you'll ever see.




    Which is why us thrashing your lot will be so much fun. I bet England still have the scars from the Test match #Dhaka2016 #NeverForget

    It's not just that Test match you ****

    28th Match, Group B: Bangladesh v England at Chittagong, Mar 11, 2011 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo

    James Anderson gave up on ODI cricket because he still has nightmares of Shafiul Islam tonking him over long on


    33rd Match, Pool A: Bangladesh v England at Adelaide, Mar 9, 2015 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo

    And this is what traumatised Morgan and he opted to skip the Bangladesh tour a year later

    yeah but you spend most of your time in match threads determined to post about how they'll go down in flames rather than actually doing well. that's the flopping

    Out of interest, when does this tourney finish up? The young bloke is touring the UK from late June, he might be able to catch a game if they have time.

    90% of the time that is just an honest appraisal.

    Bollocks....you can't be. You can't be committed to a horse when you've got 2 horses in the race /end of.

    And how easy is it to shrug off a loss when you can play this card............

    That's just ****ed up on so many levels.

    Edit:

    Zorax you know I'm a fan, but seriously dude you've got to sort this **** out.........for your own good matey.

    How great was it when we beat England and then they toured India where we thrashed them

    Follow that up with the Sri Lanka tour and Australia's visit and it was such a great summer. We'll just pretend NZ never happened

    To be honest, suspect England's batting more likely to go ballistic against NZ than Bangladesh.

    Henry in for Southee
    Bruce in for Broom
    Blundell in for Ronchi
    Kuggeleijn in for McClenaghan
    Maybe Worker in the squad as well. Possibly for someone like Neesham or just a direct swap with Latham.
    Very rough on Sodhi, after the selectors pushed him out halfway through the last series because they'd suddenly remembered that Patel's played in England before. Henry continues to suffer for a single bad series against Australia too, though I suspect the selectors are relying on him to be in the UK playing CC anyway, for the inevitable injury callup (probably Milne).

    Wicketkeeping is still a and likewise that there's no new middle order batsman; both of these were already set in stone I suppose, as they didn't trial anyone else in the recent ODI series.

    The core of the team is still good enough to be competitive, though we'll need a century from someone in the top 4 in every knockout match.
